Kerns is good...
21 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While the theme is a bit thin, the sets and cinematography are memorable and will make you wish to visit Sedona Arizona, or any other area of the west coast that doesn't have winter.....

George Grizzard as the father and the mystery in the family are a theme we have seen before, but somehow Kerns manages to transcend material, and becomes her role, she is sympathetic and believable in these films.

There is nothing wrong with escapism if it helps one to get through their day, and LMN network seems to have cornered this niche, sometimes filling in believable gaps that everyone experiences in their own families. This theme might also be interesting if it were explored with an estranged brother and sister. Recommended.
